Jamie Taylor, Group Show Director of QD Events, said: “With more and more people choosing to holiday at home instead of venturing abroad, the show is the perfect place for visitors to get to grips with all of the fantastic opportunities that holidaying in Scotland and the UK can offer.

“These type of holiday’s give people so much freedom on what they can do, particularly for those who love their family pet to come along and enjoy it as well.

“The show is open to everyone, from those who already have an interest and enjoy the great outdoors to ‘first-time campers’ as there is a wide variety of products and equipment to suit all types of outdoor holidays.”
